Again another rumor mill hit the net saying Queen Diva Aretha Franklin didn’t show up to the funeral because she wasn’t wanted there. Aretha was supposedly saying something negative about Whitney and Cissy (Whitney’s mom) heard about it and did not invite Aretha. Once again, DivaWhispers is here to clean up this mess. Here is the truth.
“Unfortunately I had terrible leg spasms and locked leg muscles until 4 a.m. this morning following my concert last night, which I’ve been having for the last few days. I feel it necessary and very important to stay off my leg today as much as possible until concert time this evening.”
“Parents really have to talk to their children before they leave home. They have to make sure when they leave home, they have all the right things. She left home with all the right things but she kind of just lost her way along the way……I thought yes she has conquered her challenges and she is on that way.”
“Extra TV, the New York Post, and Newsday (New York) should stop the BS. Cissy Houston and I have been longtime friends for almost 50 years. I have four invitations and parking passes that were sent to me for the funeral. Extra TV, the New York Post, and Newsday (New York) are more interested in sensationalism and negative speculations than the truth. People are getting their information from the wrong source. The intelligent and the thoughtful thing to do would be to respect and have some sensitivity to the moment. If you don’t know how, at least try.
Cissy does not need ridiculous speculation and neither do I — particularly at this time. Also, with respect to the Today Show my entire statement was pretaped. However, the Today Show did not air the part of my statement which said, ‘This is no reflection on Cissy or Nippy’s upbringing.’ Knowing Cissy as well as I do, I know Whitney left home right and properly. I was generalizing and it was a well intended statement for any young adult coming into the music industry. I was not speaking of anyone specifically.”
Here we go again. I really hope Bobby has more sense to do that to his ex-wifes family better yet the mother of his child. I’m sure it would be a best seller and it would probably be a great read because i’m sure everyone wants to know the REAL story behind Whitney and Bobby. But at what cost? Is it really worth it? Think of what this can do to Bobbi Kristina. Now if he writes a tell all maybe it should be about all the positive things she’s accomplished in her lifetime. Things she did to help others and make others laugh that we never knew. I don’t believe a tell all has to have a negative impact. We all love uplifting stories just as much as dirt. Just look at how much Self Help books bring in. Millions. I personally feel that a story about Whitney’s life can be an encouragement for others who have gone through what she has. Don’t you think?
